I tried it again, and I think I got some more info on it.
It seems that TSVN (or windows?) tries to position the tooltip in a
way that either the left or the right end of the text bubble is near
the mouse cursor. When the tooltip is smaller than half of the screen,
this always works.
But if the tooltip is wider than half of the screen (which only the
svn:external seems to be on my screen), and the window and the mouse
is at the center of the screen, the alignment fails and seems to fall
back to something like "position the tool tip to the left side of the
screen". Seems TSVN positions the tooltip then to the left of the
virtual desktop and not to the left of the current monitor.
